Nokia tries again with N810 Internet tablet, now available
It costs more than an iPhone, but an updated version of Nokia's second-generation Internet tablet has arrived on store shelves just in time for the holidays at a price of $479. The Nokia N810. boasts both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, and a nearly 4 1/4-inch display with 800x480 resolution.
A version of Linux dubbed OS 2008 powers the N810 and includes a Mozilla-based browser with Ajax capabilities, Abobe Flash, as well as Skype and Real's Rhapsody service. The previous N800 tablet can be updated with the new software as well. Although its Internet tablets have only seen minor success in the marketplace, Nokia is hoping third party developers will create applications that make the device more enticing to consumers.
